While this is still in the planning stages, let's choose the next swap's themes!

Most of you when asked wanted to stay at the 1" size, but we can, of course, add another size IF there is enough interest.

I will leave the poll up until 10/26. Once the two themes are selected, sign ups will be up until November 16th and the swaps will be due in my hands no later than January 11, 2014.

Vote for:

*Stashbuster prints (like in the previous six swaps)

*TRUE 1930's repros

*TRUE Civil W*ar repros

*Batiks (must prewash your fabrics for this theme, please)

*TOT (tone on tone)

*Olympic colors (blue, black, red, yellow and green TOT)

*Black and white prints

*Spring colors (pastel colors)

*Winter colors (white, blues)

*TRUE red, white and blue prints

*BRIGHT prints

*Small floral prints

I voted black and white prints as that is something new to my stash.

I still have 1930's fabrics left from earlier. But I'm "easy" - I'll sew on whatever you put in front of me...

This swap won't be due until January 2014, so you have plenty of time!

Linda, did you vote?

Another suggestion for a future theme is novelty prints. I will add that to my list for the next swap poll.

Well, it seems that black & white and white and black prints are a go! I already started, as I had tons of leftover 2 1/2" squares cut for a quilt border that I never used. I can say that the folks at work are missing those lovely fall colors!

As predicted, the TRUE black and white (and TRUE white and black) prints and Stashbusters are the two themes for the seventh hexagon swap.

Be looking for the official sign up AND the poll for the eight hexie swap to be posted both here and on the blog very soon! Smile
